In metaphysical studies, we learn that everything is in the One Mind and that we have access to It as we are part of the One (all of us – you too!). Therefore, technically-speaking, when we lose something, we may have dropped it, misplaced it, forgotten where we put it, or – in the case of my grandchildren’s cat – it may have wandered off of its own accord; but it is never truly LOST.
Several years ago after moving across town, ‘Figgy’ the cat had slipped out of my daughter’s house. Instead of returning shortly after his escape as he usually did, he remained gone for several weeks. The family was heart-broken and so was I. My grandchildren missed their cat. My grandson drew a picture of Figgy to hang over his bed to remember him, because Figgy slept with him at night, moving back and forth between his and his sister's beds.
I was sad that the poor thing was lost, and could only imagine all the outcomes – most were not pleasant – and yet something deep inside of me kept saying that he was alive and well. I continued to drive past their old house on the chance that he had made his way across 2 boroughs to his old stomping grounds, but no luck, and no Figgy. We were about 4 weeks into him being gone when someone introduced me to the Golden Thread technique.
There are several ways to initiate the Golden Thread technique. Some people use affirmative prayer as a precursor, while others use meditation. Which opening technique used is less important than the intention behind it. I know people who have found lost cars, keys, wallets, and even $10,000 cash that was misplaced in a house for almost a year. I used the Golden Thread technique to find my grandchildren's cat and though he was a rescued stray, I know that he was worth way more than $10,000 to them. He had been a part of their family since he was a tiny kitten.
Here’s the Golden Thread technique that I used to bring Figgy home.
As I mentioned above, there is One collective conscious Mind and everything (knowledge, or Truth) is contained in that Mind. As individual expressions of this conscious Mind, we have access to that “everything” so we have access to the location of lost things.
I spoke my word for finding Figgy and at the end of the Treatment/prayer, in my mind I imagined tying a thin, golden thread around him like a harness. I imagined it in detail - a thin cord, metallic-gold in color and texture; like sewing or craft thread. I then imagined gently pulling that harness toward me, nudging the wayward kitty back toward our family.
Afterward I went about my day, but each time Figgy crossed my mind, I would mentally tug on that golden thread, pulling him closer and closer.
I kept this up, and continued to affirm that Figgy was home, stating the desired outcome as if it had already occurred. Several days went by, then a week. I continued to tug on that harness every time that wandering cat came into my thoughts.
One Thursday my entire family left town. My parents were visiting my sister on the other side of the state, and my kids had gone north to visit their father’s family. They had all been gone about a day when my cell phone rang. It was my daughter.
Animal control had Figgy in "custody" in the neighboring borough and the officer would be there for the next hour if I wanted to go pick him up. The microchip that the Veterinarian had implanted in Figgy when they first adopted him led to the notification, so I sped down to the “holding cell” where a very grateful, but tentative Figgy came out from under the bench and nuzzled my hand.
After more than 6 weeks missing, many people were sure Figgy was a goner; many people - but not me.
The next time you lose something, try the Golden Thread technique. You don’t have to ascribe to a particular belief system to use it, but it helps if you are able to keep an open mind, and speak affirmatively about the outcome that you want (as if it was already true), instead of begging or asking for it to be true.
If you're new to these teachings, you can reach out to one of the Blackbirds Rising Practitioners to do Spiritual Mind Treatment for you to kick-start your Golden Thread experience. This stuff works - for me, for many others, and it can work for you, too!
And so it is.
